About The Area

Trefin, The Mill Cafe and Aberfelin 
  • Trefin is a charming, unspoilt, historic village on North Pembrokeshire’s rugged coast near St Davids, 500 yards inland from some spectacular cliffs and coves. Scattered throughout the village are pretty traditional Welsh cottages. Walk from the house to the pub, the Ship Inn,  which welcomes families and serves meals of freshly caught and locally sourced produce. 
  •  A little further down the lane is the popular Mill Café, great for breakfasts, lunch and tea. There is also a display of local art and crafts in the cafe. 
  • Stroll west out of the village, to a small valley with a bridge. To the right is a footpath that leads down to a small cove called Aberfelin, where the ruins of Melin Trefin overlook the beach - great for rock pools at low tide. You can also pick up the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path at this point.

The Coastal Path
  • The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path (now part of the All Wales Path) runs for 168 miles from St Dogmaels in the north to Amroth in the south. Join the path at Aberfelin, the walk to the south is lovely. It is about 2.5 miles around the bay to the village of Porthgain.
  • To the north, it runs towards Abercastle and Strumble Head. The cliffs are dramatic and the scenery captivating at all times of year – but in the spring the flowers and birds put on a truly spectacular performance! Strumble Head in the distance is dramatic and moody, changing the atmosphere as the light and clouds pass.
The Strumble Shuttle
  • From Trefin village you can catch the Strumble Shuttle, the local bus service, along the coast in either direction. Reduce your carbon footprint, relax and leave the car - the bus stops by request and you can walk out and bus back or the other way round.
Abercastle Cove , Carreg Sampson and Mathry
  • Along the coast to the north is the pretty sheltered cove at Abercastle. Dotted with fishing and pleasure boats and overlooked by little former fishermen’s cottages, it is a popular spot for launching small craft.
  • The Coastal path north towards Abercastle will take you past the cromlech of Carreg Samson with it’s huge capstone resting precariously on the lower stones. It is unimaginable how it ever got there!
  • The hilltop village of Mathry with its family-friendly Farmers Arms (good pub food), ancient church and excellent tearoom Siop Fach, which also sells antiques and collectables.
Woollen Mills – Tregwynt and Solva
  • Just up the coast from Trefin is the Woollen Mill at Melin Tregwynt. Internationally renowned and popular with locals too, it produces beautiful locally designed, woven blankets and woollen goods. Stop a while and enjoy a lunch or cake and coffee at the café.
  • Solva Woollen Mill, on the west coast of the St Davids peninsula, is the oldest working mill in Pembrokeshire. With an accent on woollen floor coverings – rugs and carpets – it also sells a range of quality craft goods and boasts among its customers the Prince of Wales.

Fishguard Town and Lower Town Harbour
  • Fishguard is the nearest town to Trefin. Stock up on great local produce from the weekly farmers market in the town hall and check out the individual shops, restaurants and pubs in this ‘up and coming’ little town.
  • The ‘Last Invasion Tapestry’, which is 35 meters long , was sewn by local needlewomen. This amazing tapestry is displayed in the Town Hall and illustrates the story of the ‘Last Invasion of Britain’ in 1797 in which Fishguard was the target.
  • Picturesque Lower Town Harbour is a good spot for some‘crabbing’ off the wall at high tide. Wander amongst the boats or walk out along the quayside to the sailing club. At low tide there is a little beach beyond the harbour wall in this pretty, unspoiled coastal harbour.

 Kayak King, Fishguard
  • For a different way to explore the Pembrokeshire Coastline, book a half day tour with Kaya King and explore the coastline on sit-on-top kayaks. Tours run from Lower Fishguard twice daily. Paddle along and discover mystical caves, secluded beaches and playful marine life.
Kayak King offer trips for both beginners and experts out to explore the cliffs and caves of Pembrokeshire coastline.

Priskilly Forest Golf Club
  • Founded in 1992, Priskilly Forest Golf Club is renowned for its warm welcome and challenging course set in picturesque parkland nestling amongst mature oaks, sycamores and rhododendrons and with panoramic views of the coast and country. The course is open all year to visitors of all abilities and tuition is available.All your golfing requirements - for purchase or hire – are available at the golf shop. While you play, your family can enjoy the woodland walk and try the delicious food in Y Cabin Bar/Bistro.

Porthgain Village and Harbour
  • Porthgain, a picturesque harbour village just along the coast from Trefin, was once a prosperous nineteenth-century industrial harbour which exported slate from local quarries at Porthgain and Abereiddi. Now the village is popular for water sports enthusiasts - boaters, rowers, fishermen and canoeists - their activities overlooked by relics of the industrial past.
  • Children can play on the village green while their families browse in the Harbour Lights Gallery and Alun Davies Gallery. 
  • Eating out - try the popular Sloop Inn - a Historic Public House and the award-winning Shed, a gem of a Fish Restaurant serving fish and chips purporting to match Rick Steins for quality - is a must.

The Peninsula Beaches
  • From Trefin, the nearest accessible beach to the south is Traeth Llyfyn. Approached from the coastal path – an easy walk from Porthgain – there is a long metal staircase down to the sandy beach (check that the tide is out). A little further on is the popular black sandy beach at Abereddy with its Blue Lagoon – a favourite hauntor fossil hunting!
  • Heading north look for Abermawr and Aberbach. Both backed by a shingle bank, Abermawr is sandy at low tide and a lovely place to play or walk the dog. To the rear of the beach is a wooded valley – a carpet of blue in May when the bluebells are out and a great place for children to play while the grown-ups stroll.
  • Down the coast, near to St Davids is Whitesands - a wide sandy Blue Flag beach and a stunning location. With lifeguard cover in the summer and surf hire and surfing lessons available at the beach, it is popular with surfers as well as for swimming and water sports of all sorts.

St Davids Cathedral, City
  • St Davids City is certainly worth a visit and only 8 miles fromTrefin. There is a well-stocked supermarket, butchers, greengrocers, post office, ice cream and chocolate shop and two banks – as well as galleries and shops for clothes, gifts and outdoor gear. 
  • It is a delightful place to while away your holiday! Enjoy the atmosphere of the outdoor farmers market on the Cross Square on Thursdays throughout the summer with all sorts of local produce and tasty morsels.
  • Giannis Ice Cream Parlour offers a huge selection of great homemade ice cream to choose from. Bakewell Tart, Salted Caramel, Cherry Sorbet and Cream Egg are just some of the unusual flavours. They even do ice cream for dogs which is brilliant on hot days! If you are in St David's ice cream here is a must.
  • In the valley below the town is the lovely medieval Cathedral dating back to 1181, it is both a church and a historic building. Take the time to enjoy the history and atmosphere of this very special place. Guidebooks and volunteer stewards will help you understand its history and changing fortunes across the centuries.
  • Across the tiny river Alun is the ruined Bishop Palace with its decorated stonework, wheel window, halls and stairways, restored sufficiently to fire the imagination of young and old.

Ramsey Island Boat Trips
  • Book a boat trip whilst in St Davids around the famous bird island of Ramsey to look for seabirds, dolphins, whales, grey seals and other marine wildlife. Choose from either a fast adrenalin ride or a more sedate one - an experience not to be missed and your dogs are welcome too!
Family Fun
  • Explore Pembrokeshire to discover an array of amazing family attractions including Castell Henllys Reconstructed Iron Age Settlement, Dr. Beynon's Bug Farm and Grub Kitchen, West Wales Karting, Folly Farm, The Tudor Merchant House Tenby (N.T), Manor Wildlife Park, Blue Lagoon, Picton Castle’s Secret Owl Garden and Heatherton Sports Park – all are great fun for a day out together.
Enjoy year round breaks in this luxurious home just a short stroll from the Pembrokeshire coast.
